3 College Junior

Drug Safety: There are times when students do smoke and the RAs are not supposed to do anything unless they find the person who has been smoking. For drinking, I would say students do drink here and there but I wouldn't say it is noticeable.

Athletics: The athletic facilities are big and have several different buildings including one near the campus housing. However, the larger facility is harder to find times in but is good for classes.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I haven't had much interaction with the Greek Life students. However, the one time I looked it cost quite a bit to even get into the society.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: They are putting in new buildings for the classes and replaced several parts of the dorms for more security. However, some of the rooms can be a little small. The housing can also be a little far especially during the winter months but they do provide a shuttle across campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Some of the dorms are easier to sneak things into than others. The MACs and Templewood students have an easier time getting things into their dorms because they are less supervised than North and West.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I never really went out to parties. I was busy at my dorm with my roommates and homework. Some of the dorms have a curfew.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: It took forever to work out what I was missing on my financial aid. This was especially difficult because of the distance between my permanent home and the campus. I wasn't able to fully complete my financial aid until I arrived on campus and even then it took several days if not weeks to complete.

3 College Freshman

Computers: There are several computer labs across the campus. One of them is near the campus housing, and open late for working on homework. There are several computers in each computer lab along with a computer tech for assistance. The library also has a computer lab along with printing capabilities. The cost of printing is around 10 cents per page and can add up on large assignments. However, they also have copying in the library computer lab, and a computer lab stationed in the science lab.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: If you're not native its much harder to find scholarships

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Its cold in the winter waiting for a bus and everything is very spread out. Best bet is to get a car

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Their pretty relaxed, Just don't break the rules and you will be fine.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Summers are great and winters are cold cold cold. If you love winter activities, you'll have a blast

5 College Sophomore

Majors: The course is well put together. I learn very quickly and the teacher is very knowledgeable about everything.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Its call University of Automatic Acceptance....

5 College Sophomore

Computers: I use my own computer but the ones I see on campus look up to date and top of the line.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am not a part of the team but I love to watch hockey and basketball games. Our hockey team is the best of the best.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I have never seen open drug use on campus. I know students who use marijuana and some who dont. Its really a personal opinion. I know that campus pd doesn't put up with it. Im suerethere are anti drug programs at UAA but I dont care enough to check.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I have lived here my whole life and it has the most beautiful scenery on the planet. If you are the outdoorsy type Alaska is the place for you. As far as music there aren't many famous live shows that come to Anchorage, but I guarantee you can find some form of live music any day of the week. The atmosphere in most bars is pretty nice.weekend nights they are pretty crowded and loud. You can usually find a good ski premier to watch at the Wendy Williamson during the winter, or a great play to watch in the summer at the PAC. Anchorage is full of adventure and culture.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: One of the most diverse places I've ever been

3 College Freshman

Majors: There aren't enough academic advisors to meet the need of all the students. Often the best help comes from students who are a few years ahead of you in the program, or you just have to muddle through on your own and make the best of the online resources.

College Freshman

Majors: I haven't had the opportunity to participate in any internship program.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: Public transportation off campus is virtually nonexistent. The on campus bus stops are exposed which is miserable in the wintertime. A car is the easiest way to get around both on and off campus. Campus parking is limited however.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: UAA student body reflects Alaska's ethnically diverse population. Most people are accepting of ethnic and religious diversity. Alaska is a beginning to be more accepting of sexually diverse populations.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of ethnic food options. Alaska has the most culturally diverse population I've ever seen. The majority of students in the public school system are english as a second language students, and the restaurants reflect this immense diversity. From Vietnamese, Hawaiian, Chinese, Sushi, Tibetan and vegan, if you want it, Anchorage probably has a restaurant that serves it.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I've seen alcohol use around campus, and some weed, but nothing too hard core and nothing that I've ever heard of ending in injury or serious illness. While Alaska as a whole has experienced an increase in drug use, the university students don't really participate.
